Belgian Democratic Terror Against Chechen Human Rights Activist as a Response to his Engagement for the Rights of Chechen Political Prisoners

On April 7, 2011 in the afternoon in the Belgian capital Brussels “unknown perpetrators” broke the window of the car of human rights defender Imran Ezhiev. The car was parked near the U.S. Embassy. ​​The criminals committed burglary. “Unidentified persons” stole a briefcase with important papers, including passports of the members of  Imran Ezhiev’s family, his driver’s license, registration and insurance certificates for the car. Nobody took the expensive GPS navigator – this fact indicates it wasn’t an ordinary burglary. For a few days  Imran was followed and watched by some Russian-speaking people – there is no doubt they were agents of Russian secret services. Their actions were precise and coordinated – there are reasons to believe that they were able to eavesdrop on Imran Ezhiev’s telephone conversations. It could become possible only thanks to the coordination of their efforts with Belgian secret services.
The street, on which the car was parked, was under the observation of multiple video cameras. Simple thieves wouldn’t have dared to break the glass of a car in such a place. When Imran Ezhiev called the police, it refused to come to the crime scene, which again confirms the assumption that the Chechen human rights defender has become a victim of sabotage organized jointly by Russian and Belgian secret services. Belgian democrats and their Russian friends from Putin-Medvedev’s  FSB were enraged by Imran Ezhiev’s active efforts to defend  the rights of Chechen refugee Arbi Zarmaev, incarcerated in Belgian democratic dungeons on false charges and currently being murdered by the democratic hangmen in the prison of Bruges. Imran Ezhiev has managed to pursue the Strasbourg Court to suspend Zarmaev’s extradition from Belgium to Russia. The extradition was suspended on April 5.
Arbi Zarmaev’s Belgian lawyer, to whom  the defendant’s family has paid a large sum of money, is engaged in the unscrupulous sabotage. He tried to convince Imran Ezhiev, referring to a Belgian law from 1874 (!), that it was impossible to send an appeal to the Strasbourg Court. Imran Ezhiev invited to Belgium an Italian professor of psychiatry to examine Arbi Zarmaev. The lawyer exerted more effort than jailors to prevent the Italian professor from examining the tortured Zarmaev. Thanks to Imran Ezhiev’s  incredible perseverance the Italian professor finally was allowed to visit Zarmaev.
For a long time Arbi Zarmaev’s family members were prevented from visiting him. The prison administration claimed he allegedly “didn’t want to see anybody.” On April 6th Imran Ezhiev managed to arrange Zarmaev’s meeting with his wife. What she saw was terrifying: her husband recognized her with difficulty, could not recognize his children. He was crawling on the floor with glazed eyes, was picking up some pills and all the time was muttering: “Fascist… Oh, Allah… Fascist … Oh, Allah …” His wife was shocked. Belgian democratic jailors turned her completely healthy husband  into a deranged animal. Probably they have caused irreversible changes in his mind. Arbi Zarmaev’s physical condition is as depressing as his mental one. For a long time his hands were handcuffed and his legs were shackled, which resulted in deep non-healing wounds. Zarmaev doesn’t have access to any medical care. His wounds are rotting, which can lead to gangrene.
Arbi Zarmaev’s relatives are so desperate that they want to ask to cancel the suspension of Arbi’s extradition to Russia. Their desperation is so great that they are already want  him to be extradited  to Russia in hope that in the Putin-Medvedev’s concentration camp he will be treated somehow better than in the Belgian democratic prison.
I’d like to point out that Belgian politicians and human rights defenders, to whom Imran Ezhiev addressed his plea to help political prisoner Arbi Zarmaev, only made several phone calls to jailors and pretended to believe their assurances that Arbi Zarmaev’s situation was “improving.” Even the Committee Against Torture of the Council of Europe didn’t want to help Arbi Zarmaev.
Belgian democrats have gotten mad at Imran Ezhiev probably also because he, in cooperation with MEPs Frieda Brepoels and Bart Staes, managed to secure the release of political prisoner Aslanbek Baysungurov – an invalid without legs, thrown into Belgian dungeons on absurd charges of “preparing terrorist attacks against the NATO facilities”. In addition, Imran Ezhiev has discovered that Belgian authorities hold in prisons on dim charges large numbers of foreigners – Armenians, Georgians, Uzbeks. Many of them have no idea why they were arrested. This reminds of Arbi Zarmaev’s story – he sat in jail for six months without an arrest warrant and without any charges.
